We are inviting all GFS girls and young women to submit their design for the official GFS Happy New Year Card.
The winner will see their credited design on the cover of the card, which will be sent out to all our volunteers, Townsend Network and partners to celebrate the end of 2023 and the start of 2024. The winner will also receive a £20 Amazon voucher and two runners-up will receive a £10 Amazon Voucher each.
Winners will be announced in mid-December on our channels, and via email to the Group Coordinator or Group Leader of winners’ and runners’ up’s groups.
The design brief
The aim of the cards is to wish everyone that plays a role in GFS an amazing start to 2024 and look forward to what the new year will hold for us together. How you do this is totally up to you!
There are just a few rules we’d like you to follow:
- Designs can be hand drawn, painted, digitally produced (using a drawing app) or designed however you like. However, it must be flat (not pop-up) so it can be scanned and sent to print.
- We’re particularly keen to see designs that are eye-catching and original. It can be portrait or landscape.
- Your design must be inclusive and inoffensive (although being a bit cheeky/funny is fine).
- We recommend creating something that’s A4 as a maximum and A6 as a minimum in size as the printed design will be adjusted to fit an A6 card (15cm x 10.5cm).
